No meeting

coverage?
The midweek Democrat
carries a Wednesday date-
line, but the paper actually
goes to press Tuesday
evening. That's why there's
no coverage of last night's
county commission meeting,
at which the controversial
countywide voting question
was set to be addressed. See
Friday's Democrat for a
complete report on the meet-
ing.

Caban's status still uncertain


Code officer still has a job for now


By Vanessa Fultz
vanessa.fultz@gaflnews.com

City Code Enforcement Officer David Ca-
ban will keep his job foi at least another week.
On the advice of a Tallahassee labor lawyer,
the council will revisit the question of Caban's
status at a special meeting March 27.
When City Administrator Bob Farley rec-
ommended placing Caban on permanent status


at a March 11 council meeting, Councilman
Mark Stewart's motion to that effect died for a
lack of a second. No further action was taken
on the matter.
Because the council did not formally fire
Caban, "there was no clear cut answer" to the
question of Caban's status, said attorney Rob
Larkin, a labor law specialist. Caban was in
limbo, no longer on probation but not a per-
manent employee either.

A regional park is in the works for Live
Oak.
The city has applied for a Florida Com-
munities Trust non-matching grant up to
$6.6 million to purchase the Crapps estate
on Helvenston Street for the development
of a regional park. If purchased, the city
will turn the Crapps property over to the
county parks and recreation department to

City Attorney Ernie Sellers said he believed
the council's failure to grant Caban permanent
status at the end of his probation meant Caban
had effectively been fired. Councilman Don
Boyette agreed.
"I don't know what we did, but that's the
way I saw it," Boyette said of the council's
failure to grant Caban permanent status. "It
was clear that four councilmen didn't want
him."
Mayor Sonny Nobles called the situation un-

passed away Saturday due
to complications from by-
pass surgery.
Bowdoin Bowdoin was admitted
to St. Vincent's at Jack-
sonville on Feb. 22 for a cardiac catheteriza-
tion when doctors told him he needed imme-
diate bypass surgery. Bowdoin went into a
coma after the surgery and never regained
consciousness, said a family friend.

an office on Ohio Avenue in Live Oak. He

What's so important about MyPyramid?


A HEALTHIER yOU


Two years ago the USDA introduced the new version of the old
food pyramid. The new one is well thought out and different in
many ways from the older versions.


By Cathy Rogers
Family and Consumer Sciences /
4-H Agent
Suwannee County Extension
Service
The food pyramid, now called
MyPyramid, is the basis for all
good nutrition. It includes ideas
about how to get healthy and stay
healthy. Based on research it uses
common sense to encourage
lifestyles that include physical
activity as well as eating right.
Two years ago the USDA
introduced the new version of the
old food pyramid. The new one is
well thought out and different in
many ways from the older
versions. It symbolizes a
personalized approach to healthy
eating and physical activity.
Here are some of the main
differences between the old food
pyramid and the new MyPyramid:
Food categories run vertically,
from bottom to top. Moderation is
shown by the narrowing of each
food group from bottom to top.
We all know that there are very
healthy and less healthy foods in
every food group. The foods at


the base of each band indicate
those with little or no solid fats or
added sugars and salt. These
foods should be selected more
often. The foods near the top are
those containing more solid fats
and added sugars and salts. The
more active you are, the more of
these you can afford to choose.
Physical activity is a part of it.
The person climbing the stairs
reminds us that daily physical
activity is important.
It is personalized. The new
name, MyPyramid, indicates that
the kinds and amounts of foods to
eat will depend on your gender,
age, and activity level. Check the
Web site at www.mypyramid.gov/.
The website is very interactive. It
includes video tour of
MyPyramid. You will also find all
kinds of diet and health tips as
well as a fun kid's activity that
teaches them how to make wise
choices through use of a video
game!
Variety of colors on the
pyramid shows that variety of
foods in the daily diet is
important. Some foods from each


of the 5 food groups and oils
should be eaten each day.
The widths of the bands of
color show proportionality. The
widths suggest how much food
from each food group a person
should choose each day. These
are general guidelines, however,
and not exact proportions. The
Web site will show how much is
right for you.
Steps To A Healthier You is the.
slogan that accompanies the
symbol of the pyramid. It
suggests that everyone benefits
from taking small steps to improve
their diet and lifestyle each day.
Start looking for the
MyPyramid symbol. You will find
it on many of the groceries that
you buy. Remember that it is
there to remind you to make
healthy choices.
If want more information go
online to www.mypyramid.gov/ or
come by the Suwannee County
Extension Office at 1302 11th St.
SW (beside the Coliseum) to get a
copy of MyPyramid or for further
explanation. Ask for Cathy
Rogers or Bonnie Box.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
I When Tomorrow Starts Without Me


When tomorrow starts without me
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say

I know how much you love me,
As much I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you will miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The goods ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
All the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just evenfor a while, .. '
I'd say-goodbye and kiss you,
And maybe see you smile.


But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His Great golden throne,
He said, "This is eternity,
And all I have promised you.
Today your life on earth is part,
But here life starts anew.'
'I promised no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for,the past.'


'But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.
'But you have been forgiven
And now at last you are free
So won't you come and take my
hand,
And share my life with me'

So when tomorrow starts
without me,
Don't think we are far
apart,
For every time you
think of me,
I'M RIGHT THERE,
IN YOUR HEART.

Nice work,


United Way

Congratulations to United Way of Suwannee Val-
ley on its 40th birthday. Countless folks in Suwan-
nee, Hamilton and Columbia counties have benefit-
ed from the work of this organization over the last
four decades.
United Way doesn't donate money directly to
those in need. Rather, it collects funds and distrib-
utes them to approved agencies which in turn pro-
vide needed assistance. (As an alternative, funds
may be sent directly to an agency of a donor's
choice). According to its mission statement,
UWSV's goal is "to increase the organized capacity
of our people to care for one another by uniting all
of the efforts of caring groups and individuals in Co-
lumbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties toward
making life here a more fulfilling experience for
all." We think they're doing a fine job.
United Way consists mostly of volunteers-who
work to support a broad range of services. Funds are
allocated by a citizens' committee which reviews the
operations of each United Way affiliated agency to
be sure they're run in an efficient and economical,
."way. Less than 6 percent of fundsgo:to, cover ad-
ministrative costs.
And money raised here stays here. Funds raised in
the United Way of Suwannee Valley service area -
Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee counties stay
in our community to meet the needs of friends, fam-
ily members, employees and customers.
United Way does more than raise money, though.
Among other things, it helps people get the help
they need through information and referral assis-
tance.
And United Way agencies aren't just for the poor.
Funds are distributed where they will do the most
good for the entire community. United Way agencies
provide services that benefit the entire community.

Here are the local agencies which United Way of
Suwannee Valley helps fund:
American Red Cross of North Central Florida
Annie Mattox Recreation Center, Inc.
Another Way, Inc.
Boys Club of Columbia County
Boys & Girls Club of Suwannee County
Boy Scouts of America, North Florida Council
Catholic Charities Bureau, Inc.
Children's Home Society
Columbia County Senior Services
Comprehensive Community Services, Inc.
Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Mid-Flori-
da, Inc.
CDS Family & Behavioral Health Services, Inc.
Girl Scouts of Gateway Council, Inc.
Hamilton County Council on Aging, Inc.
Happy House, Inc.
Lake City Family YMCA
Love INC of Suwannee County
Suwannee County Police Athletic League
Suwannee Valley Community Coordinated Child
Care
Three Rivers Legal Services, Inc.
Vivid Visions, Inc.
Voices for Children/Guardian ad Litem
WellFlorida Council, Inc.

UWSV raised more than $660,000 during its last
campaign. With various matching grants, the total


exceeds $1,000,000. That's a lot of help for a lot of
folks. We bet they'll do even better next time.

FROM. OUR READERS


To the Editor:
During my 30 plus years of service as a councilman and
mayor, I have made it a rule not to respond to issues that
appear in the newspaper. I realize you can't win. As the old
saying goes, newspapers buy ink by the barrel and
newsprint by the ream. Neither can you win when mean-
spirited cowards have access' to the media where they can
write anything they wish and don't have to put their names
to it. It doesn't matter if it's true, false or slanted. Should
they wish to maliciously hurt someone's reputation, they
have a faceless forum to do so. Okay, I got that off my
chest. I feel a need to respond and defend myself from
these slanderous comments.
I will respond to allegations that I broke the law in al-
lowing a piece of city equipment to be used by a private
contractor. Here is the true and real story. I have taken
some ribbing about not remembering giving my approval.
This incident happened in September or October of
2005. Yes, two and a half years ago. My accusers probably
don't even realize that or could care less. I challenge any-
one to remember where they were and what they did two
and a half years ago. It amazes me why this came up all of
a sudden. Could it be that someone is just trying to dis-
credit me by unearthing something that happened two and
one-half years ago. Sounds like there might be a skunk un-
der the porch.
I questioned City Administrator Bob Farley, Public
Works Director Todd Hunt, Finance Director Jan
Parkhurst and Dennis Music of Music Construction about
the incident. The information I will relay to you came from
their recollection. This situation happened during the
tenure of a previous city administrator. He was away from
the office that day so I was approached with the question.
If he had been in the office, odds are I would not have even
gotten involved. In a recent conversation with the contrac-
tor, he said he called someone (he could not remember
who) and stated he was in a real dilemma. He was putting
in a catch or lift station and a heavy rain the night before
filled the structure with dirt and water. In that conversation
with Mr. Music, he said he attempted to find a vac-truck
but was unable to find one in the area that could give him
immediate help. According to Ms. Parkhurst, I asked dur-
ing the meeting when my approval was given if the con-
tractor would pay the city for this service. The answer was
yes. Music Construction paid the bill as invoiced by the
city for the use of the truck. In the spirit of trying to help
a local contractor who was in a real bind doing a job at the
location of the county's largest employer, I approved the
use. I suppose I did it to help someone in a bind and out of
the goodness of my heart which has never been uncom-
mon for me.
It has not been uncommon for the city to aid and assist
people and organizations in the -community. Over the
years, the city has allowed city equipment and personnel
to assist with projects on property other than city property.
The city has aided Branford, Mayo, the Florida Sheriffs
Boys Ranch, school board and even Key West among
many other agencies and individuals. My action did not
break any state laws or city ordinances. In fact, city policy
allows for the use of city equipment to be used for private
use. I state again, city policy allows for the use of city
property for private use. This policy was approved and en-
acted by the Live Oak City Council and has been used
when occasions arose over the years. "Policy 3.09-B USE


OF CITY PROPERTY/VEHICLES: This policy hereby
expressly prohibits the use of any City property by City
Employees, corporate entities, private business, or other
governmental agencies for projects not authorized by the
City, unless expressly approved in writing by the City Ad-
ministrator or his designee. The City Administrator, in or-
der to provide for the public health, welfare or safety of
citizens of the City, allow the use of City property by out-
side agencies. The City Administrator shall within a rea-
sonable time after authorizing the use of City equipment
by an outside agency, reduce to writing the justification for
the action." This is the policy in its entirety.
All of this came about when Councilman Hale made a
formal complaint to DEP alleging illegal dumping of
sewage by OMI. Tommy Townsend, an employee of OMI,
told Councilman Hale about the dumping. During the in-
vestigative interview with Councilman Hale, DEP and
Tommy Townsend, Townsend reported to Councilman
Hale and DEP Investigator Lt. Christian that the vacuum
truck went to Gold Kist and performed work. This allega-
tion resulted in the situation involving me. I contacted
DEP, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
and Suwannee County Sheriff's Department and asked if
an investigation was being conducted by their agencies.
FDLE said no. DEP said they had received a complaint
from Councilman Hale but due to the time lag, they could
find no evidence of any illegalities and the "criminal case
was closed." I have not heard from the Sheriff's Depart-
ment. Not surprising to me, Councilman Thomas, in a let-
ter to Bob Farley, requested information concerning these
incidences. Mr. Farley has since forwarded his response to
the inquiries requested by Councilman Thomas.
I have broken no laws, I have based my 32 years of ser-
vice on honesty, truthfulness and integrity. I have never
and will never knowingly do anything illegal or dishonest
and I will always tell the truth. I work hard to ensure that
my legacy will reflect these principals. There is a lot of
stuff going on in the city. During this trying time in the
city, be careful in believing what you hear or read. Odds
are, it is not true. Please make sure that the things you say
or repeat are true. It can be mighty hurtful.
I ask that you print this Letter to the Editor in its entire-
ty as a response to information that has appeared time and
time again in the Suwannee Democrat.
Sincerely yours,
Mayor Garth R. "Sonny" Nobles Jr

precedented, however.
"In my 32 years I have
never known the council to
deny an employee perma-
nent status adversely of the
recommendation of adminis-
tration," Nobles said.
In response, Sellers sug-
gested the city hire a labor
lawyer to examine the matter
more closely.
Meanwhile, at least one
councilman said .Monday
that Caban was denied a vote
March 11 because of an er-
ror on the councilman's part.
Stewart's motion died for
lack of a second, according
to Council President Ken
Duce, because Duce was un-
aware that, as council presi-
dent, he could second a mo-


tion.
"I didn't know I could sec-
ond it as president of the
council," Duce said.
Duce said he would vote
for Caban to be placed on
permanent status at the
March 27 meeting.
"He's done a darned good
job," Duce said.
Caban has been allowed to
continue employment until
his status is determined. He
has in the meantime waived
any rights of a permanent
employee.
Caban's probation was ex-
tended and he was suspend-
ed without pay in January af-
ter he violated city policy re-
garding possession of alco-
hol and personal use of a city
vehicle during working
hours.

Does Epstein-Barr virus cause Mononucleosis?
Epstein-Barr virus is the name of a virus that causes infectious
mononucleosis (commonly referred to as mono). This condition most
commonly affects young adults and adolescents, although younger
persons also maybe affected. Many persons have been exposed to
the Epstein-Barr virus and have experienced a built up of antibodies
to the virus. Most people by the age of 35 have become immune.
Signs and symptoms of mononucleosis include fatigue, weakness,
fever, skin rash, and flight sweats. This virus is transferred from
person to person through saliva, however is not as contagious as the
common cold.
There is no specific treatment for infectious mononucleosis.
Persons affected by the Epstein-Barr virus may also be affected by
bacterial infections. which require treatment with antibiotics.
Although antibiotics are not used to treat the virus, when other
infections that are caused by bacteria are present, antibiotics may be
prescribed. Ampicillin (Principen), amoxicillin (Trimox), or
amoxicillin and clavulanate (Augmentin) may be prescribed for
bacterial infections, such as a streptococcal infection. A steroid, such
as prednisone, may be prescribed to alleviate swelling of the throat
in persons who are also affected by tonsillitis. Adequate rest and
fluidsare main treatment recommendations <.,, -

he helped in planning, de-


velopment and licensure for

gy rides will be scheduled
for special events.
Scott also envisions for
the property an amphithe-
ater, nature trails and areas
for staging sporting events.
Scott said the Florida
Communities Trust grant
would fund the initial pur-
chase and the county
would seek additional
grants over time to develop
the area.
The city is also eyeing
150 acres in the same area
on Helvenston Street to re-
locate its well fields to
meet Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection stan-
dards for drinking water.
"This is going to solve
our well field problem,"


City Administrator Bob
Farley said.
Officials will have the
ground tested to determine
whether the area meets
specifications for the new
well fields and a treatment
plant. Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District
will pay for the land and
the city has applied for a
low-interest loan to estab-
lish the new system a
$4-$5 million project.
. Farley said the location
of the current wells, locat-
ed on Bryson and McGee
streets, makes them sus-
ceptible to pollutants.
DEP cited the city in
1991 because the current
wells are under the direct
influence (UDI) of surface
water contamination.


Juveniles charged

in burglaries


Continued From Page 1A

Police 'said three of the
burglaries were committed
by two juveniles, both Live
Oak residents. The juveniles
confessed to the burglaries
at Fred's Discount Store,
Ralph's Rainbow Birdland
and Domino's Pizza, say of-
ficials.
They were each charged


with three counts of burglary
and two counts of theft.
The investigation into the
burglary at Suwannee Splash
does not appear to be related
to the other three, say police.
That investigation is continu-
ing and the LOPD is asking
for help from the public.
If you have information
into the burglary at Suwan-
nee Splash, contact Det.
Bates at LOPD at 386-362-
7463 or call Crime Stoppers
at 386-208-8477.


"This is going to solve our

well field problem."
City Administrator Bob Farley


Officials have said city
drinking water is safe for
consumption and that water
is treated extensively for
decontamination through a


nearby treatment plant on
Georgia Avenue.
Once the project is com-
plete current wells will be
capped.

several occasions.
The value of the stolen
goods is estimated at
$30,000 according to Det.
Justin Bates of the Live Oak
Police Department.
She then allegedly accom-
panied the juveniles to vari-
ous locations in Columbia
and Lafayette counties,
where the stolen property
was disposed of, authorities
say.
The juveniles committed
two burglaries, say police.
One involved the theft of
two service trucks from the
Recycle Center yard. Offi-
cials say one of the vehicles
was recovered right away,
the other several weeks later.
It was during the other bur-
glary that the juveniles were
caught inside the Recycle
Center by Sgt. Steve Riggs
and officer Thomas Faller of


say police
the Live Oak Police Depart-
ment, say authorities.
Yawn was charged, as a
principal in the first degree
to burglary, principal in the
first degree to auto theft, and
with contributing to the
delinquency of a minor.
Bates said Yawn sold
some of the material at two
locations in Columbia Coun-
ty and at one location in
Lafayette. Bates said she
made about $3,000 from the
sales.
Yawn was booked into the
Suwannee County Jail on
March 11 on a $6,000 bond.
Jail records indicated she re-
mained there as of Tuesday
morning.
The investigation is con-
tinuing and further charges
could be filed, said Bates.
Anyone with relevant in-
formation can contact Bates
at 386-362-7463 or Crime
Stoppers at 386-208-TIPS.

ASK DR. MANTOOTH


Q: What is a trench mouth?
A: Its name born from the horrible conditions of
World War I, trench mouth is a painful form of
gum infection. Among its symptoms are a grayish
film op the gums, large ulcers between the teeth,
profuse gum bleeding In response to even minor
pressure or irritation, a constant foul taste in the
mouth and equally foul breath'. Factors that
contribute to its development are poor nutrition
combined with poor oral hygiene, emotional
stress, smoking and any other infection that exists
in the mouth or throat.
The goal of treatment for tench mouth is to
eliminate the infection and relieve the symptoms.
Treatment may Include antibiotics. A salt-water
rinse may be recommended to soothe the gums.
A thorough teeth cleaning by a dentist or dental
hygienist may also be recommended. A rigorous
regimen of home oral hygiene brushing and
flossing -is essential to recovery.
By the way, if you think the term Irench mouth"
is unpleasant, consider that the condition Is more
technically called "acute necrotizing ulceratIve
gingivitis." The good news is the infection usually
responds well to treatment. The bad news is if left
untreated, it can spread to the cheeks, lips and
jawbone. Talk with your dentist about ways to
keep Infection out of your mouth.

agement in 1970 at Florida
State University. He re-
ceived his law degree from
the University of Florida,
graduating with honors in
1973. In 2006 Bowdoin was
selected as a Florida Super
Lawyer, a designation
awarded to the top 5 percent
of attorneys in Florida.
Rhett Bullard, Bowdoin's
partner in his Live, Oak of-
fice, remembers Bowdoin
fondly.
"Rod was like a mentor to


me, always willing to help,"
Bullard said Monday.
Bullard said Bowdoin was
more than just a good trial
lawyer. He was well read on
a variety of topics, and
Bullard considered him a
Renaissance man.
Local attorney Ernie Sell-
ers called Bowdoin "an ex-
cellent lawyer" and "a gen-
tleman." Sellers said Bow-
doin represented clients ex-
ceedingly well and was
courteous to his opponents.
"I am going to miss him," he
said.

The Wellborn Volunteers


Local folks have been battling

blazes since 1969


WELLBORN
NEWS
By James R. Bezaire
The Wellborn Volunteer
Fire Department began in
1969 when three local
residents, Mr. Pasco Jarvis,
Mr. Blake Lowe and Mr.
Leonard Stansel purchased a
Perich Engine for three
thousand dollars. Initially,
the department was busy
putting out tobacco barn
fires and small brush fires.
In those days most business
people served as firefighters.
The Forestry Service later
donated a two and a half ton
military truck to haul water.
The department has always
served as a backup to the
Suwannee County Fire
Department. Wellborn
Station No. 51 is located in
beautiful downtown
Wellborn next to the post
office.
Presently the department
has a yellow 1972 Seagrave
Engine which was
purchased in 1998 for
twelve thousand dollars and
is used primarily for
structural fires. The yellow
fire engine was owned by
Barton Hose Company out'
of Barton, Maryland. The
department has a mascot, an
enormous stuffed "Tweety
Bird" with the slogan, "I


tawt I taw a fire." The
department also owns a
squad truck, a utility vehicle
and a five thousand gallon
tanker to transport water.
The squad truck is used for
extrications and small brush
fires. Today the department
is kept busy responding to
traffic mishaps and small
brush fires.

The department
has a mascot, an
enormous stuffed
"Tweety Bird" with
the slogan, "I tawt
I taw a fire."


Tom Maynard serves as
the fire chief for the
Wellborn Volunteer Fire
Department. Tom has
served in this position since
1992: Tom's father was a
firefighter and his son Slade,
who also serves on the
department, has extensive
aircraft fire training and is
employed by Timco in Lake
City. Becky Gaylord is the
assistant chief and Wayne
Brooks, Dan Gleason, Slade
Maynard, Robert Noble, and
Bill Walters are all certified
firefighters who volunteer
their time to protect the
community from the ravages
of fire.


The Wellborn Volunteer
Fire Department is
supported solely by
fundraising dinners and
donations from the
community. The department
was self-sufficient for most
of its history. A year ago,
Suwannee County picked up
fuel costs, truck repairs and
insurance. The Wellborn
Community has been very
generous in its support of
the department. Every year
the department serves a free
chicken dinner in thanks to
the community for its
generous support. The
department is very grateful
to the community and will
continue its efforts to be a
first rate fire department
through training and
certification.
Chief Maynard offered
some good advice in fire
protection. He said the best
way to fight fires is to
prevent fires. Use common
sense, and please, please do
not light fires on windy days
or under severe dry
conditions. Tom cited an '
example of carelessness
when a local resident started
a brush fire in order to keep
his donkeys warm on a cold,
dry wintry day. He jokingly
added, "When the world
comes to an end, donkeys,
alligators and roaches will
be all that is left."

Florida's top bream spots


make for some lively fishing


Florida Fish Busters
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Most anglers start fishing in fresh water,
often from a bank or pier, and their first
catch is usually a bream. The image of a boy
and his dog, with a cane pole and a can of
worms, brings to life a symbol of the
American tradition of fishing and stresses
the ideal of youth connecting with nature
and learning independence. Just think it
all began with that first bream.
Florida's 7,700 named lakes and ponds
and 10,500 miles of streams and rivers, brim
with bream. "Bream" is a local term used
throughout the Southeast and includes
various deep-bodied panfish from the
sunfish family.
The most common are bluegill, redear
sunfish (shellcracker), redbreast sunfish,
spotted sunfish stumpknockerr) and'
warmouth. Although black bass are
"sunfish," they are not considered to be
bream. Almost any water body in the
Sunshine State, regardless of size or locale,,
contains hungry bream.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
anticipates that good year classes of sunfish


Jeremy Wattendorf with a bluegill taken on a far
- Photo: Bob Wattendorf/FWC 1


produced in 2004 and 2005 will maintain the
fisheries in 2008 in southern and central
peninsular Florida. In Central Florida,
shellcracker often spawn during the third
week of March or first week of April. They
begin to concentrate in the Panhandle in
mid- to late-May. Bluegill will spawn about
a month after shellcracker in each region.
Shellcracker will bed well into August,
while bluegill will periodically spawn
throughout the summer and, even as late as
November, in South Florida. Water depths
for bedding bream range from 3 to 10 feet.
Ounce-for-ounce, the abundant bluegill is
a strong battler when not over-tackled.
Those caught will range from an average of
6-8 ounces to an occasional 1-pounder.
Florida's record bluegill scaled 2.95 pounds.
"Shellcracker" is the locally popular name
for the redear sunfish, the Sunshine State's
largest "bream," which is easily identified
by the red margin at the edge of its gill flap.
If panfishing is your passion, don't overlook
Florida's many streams and rivers for more
opportunities. These gems are teeming with
redbreast sunfish, spotted sunfish
stumpknockerr) and warmouth.
Based on fishery surveys and local
expertise, here are predictions from FWC
biologists on which spots deserve to be
among our top panfish locales (in no
particular order) for 2008:
Lake Monroe, near Sanford,
should remain good for bluegill
anglers in 2008, particularly if
water levels do not drop too low.
Lake Kissimmee, east of
Lake Wales, is a 35,000-acre
lake, located in the heart of
Osceola County.
West Lake Tohopekaliga,
south of Kissimmee, is most
often called Lake Toho, and
aside from being one of the best
bass fisheries in the country, it
also supports one of the best
bluegill/redear fisheries in the
state.
rm pond. Lake Panasoffkee, west of
Leesburg, is back on the list after


better-than-expected fishing recently.
Lake Talquin, west of Tallahassee,
provides some great opportunities for bream
fishing.
Tenoroc, northeast of Lakeland, makes
fishing for panfish on the 7,300-acre fish
management area a rewarding experience.
Go to the Lake Harris Chain if you're in
the Leesburg area and have a hankering to
tussle with some heavier-than-usual bluegill
and shellcracker.
Lake Marian is located in southeast
Osceola County, east of Lake Kissimmee,
and although this 5,740-acre "sleeper" lake
doesn't receive much recognition, it's still
one of the best panfishing localities.
Lake Istokpoga, located a few miles
southeast of Sebring, is a large, relatively
shallow lake outstanding for its bluegill.
The Choctawatchee River, northwest of
Panama City, provides a great experience for
river and stream lovers.
The Suwannee River flows south from
North Central Florida to the Gulf of Mexico
and is second to none for quality-sized
spotted sunfish stumpknockerr) and
redbreast sunfish.
The Mosaic Fish Management Area,
southwest of Bartow, a 1,000-acre fish
management area in southern Polk County,
provides excellent summer panfishing
opportunities.
Lakes Orange and Lochloosa, near
Gainesville, need to be considered this year.
As a result of the 2004 floods, and with
the help of FWC habitat-enhancement
efforts, the shoreline habitat is thriving in
Orange Lake and Lake Lochloosa.
NOTE: Many of Florida's best bream
fishing spots produce consistently year after
year. Notably missing for 2008, however, is
450,000-acre Lake Okeechobee. Revered by
anglers nationwide, the "Big 0" is currently
imperiled by environmental consequences
following record-setting hurricane seasons
in 2004 and 2005 when devastating storm
winds repeatedly wreaked havoc on'
Okeechobee's aquatic plant communities. In
contrast, drought will likely limit access
until summer,2008. FWC biologists
continue to assist the South Florida Water

Once she was assured the
proper documents had been
secured, she offered to

at Bass' shop in Madison and
delivered it to the park where
they will be on display.

Who Is Most at Risk?
People with fair to light skin remain very susceptible to sunlight. In addition, those
with blond or red hair and green or blue eyes also tend to be more sensitive, as does
anyone taking any of the aforementioned medications.
A great many people also put themselves at a greater risk by allowing themselves to
be exposed to harmful UV rays throughout the summer months. Exposure longer than
30 minutes greatly increases a person's risk for photodermatitis. Exposure between
the hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. only compounds that risk, as 50 percent of UV
radiation is emitted during that time period.
